Project: Wally Why100

The forward-thinking Wally has revealed the first details of the new model why100, a bold and unique product that successfully integrates into the WallyWhy range. The exterior design and naval architecture of the WallyWhy100 was created by the experienced Wally-Ferretti Group Engineering team, with Studio A. Vallicelli responsible for the interior design. As a crossover product, the yacht fulfils the need for a more voluminous cruiser in the sub 21 meter range, combining all of the qualities of a sport yacht coupĂ© boat with the benefits of the WallyWhy volume. Much like the larger WallyWhy150 and Why200 models, the WallyWhy100 establishes a strong connection between the outside and inside. In contrast to many vessels of this size that divide the layout into different levels to create the illusion of more space, the Wally team doubled down on a one-level, stern-to-bow approach. This results in a hybrid area on the main deck level which can either be enjoyed closed or fully open to enable relaxed al-fresco dining. Other standout features on board include the enormous 14sqm beach area, which is home to a large hydraulic platform for launching and retrieving tenders and toys up to 3.6m in length. A hydraulic passarelle/swim ladder ensures easy access both to and from the dock as well as from the water. Naturally, the Wally beach area is completed by its enormous folding wings that not only increase the space by almost 50% but also deliver unobstructed 180-degree views. The full-beam master cabin is located at midships. The cabin’s ensuite is made from electrically regulated glass, meaning it can be either fully transparent to enlarge the room or opaque when in use, a first for a sub- 21 meter  yacht. In addition, the wide array of closet and storage also make this cabin unique in its class, with the side windows offering uninterrupted views of the outside. The theme continues throughout the other two guest cabins, with a total of six people accommodated on board. A VIP stateroom on the port side and a twin on the starboard side both have dedicated en-suites and large windows, enabling the rooms to be flooded by natural light. The crew are also well looked after on board the WallyWhy100. As a feature seldom seen in this size range, dedicated crew access is provided both from the main deck and from the lower deck, without having to cross into guest spaces. Notably too, taking its cue from the WallyPower world, the forward deck of the Why100 features a dedicated, multi-use lounge that can be transformed into an aperitivo area with an elevated table in the middle or into a sunlounge by lowering the table to seating height. This transformable area creates all-purpose living space for guests both at anchor and on the move. In terms of propulsion, Wally has opted for  twin Volvo 1000hp with IPS forward looking pod propulsion with cruising speeds of 24 knots and top speeds up to 27 knots in the upgraded IPS1350 specs.
